** Adolin ends up in a similar relationship with Veil, considering her a drinking buddy. And yes, he knows she's Shallan's SplitPersonality. Dating a Lightweaver is weird.

** Creator/GeoffJohns's Hal Jordan can come off as this at times. He's the Greatest of Green Lanterns, [[CharacterShilling and constantly told so]], even though the bulk of his accomplishments are only achieved through dumb luck, he can be as much a JerkAss as Guy Gardner, yet rarely be called on it, because the Parallax fiasco was retconned into being him possessed by a giant bug, that was apparently inhabiting him for years without any real change to his personality until he went nuts, his record is now spotless and he's somehow so important to the Universe that he's been able to sample the entire Emotional Spectrum, just because he's Hal Jordan.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Harry assures Ron in the seventh book that he only loves Hermione like a sister. Until then it was basically a RunningGag that people were devising {{Imaginary Love Triangle}}s involving the two.

Harry assures Ron in the seventh book (and Viktor Krum briefly in Book 4) that he only loves Hermione like a sister. Until then it was basically a RunningGag that people were devising {{Imaginary Love Triangle}}s involving the two. (It's also an extremely popular ship in RealLife, with massive InternetBackdraft when its fans realized that it wasn't going to be canon.)) Within the books, Harry never demonstrates any romantic interest in Hermione. He notably HasAType, in that the two girls he crushes on (Cho Chang, Ginny) share his interest in Quidditch, and initially attracted him because they seemed to be carefree, extroverted, and less girly than others, none of which fit Hermione's traits (she notably hates sports within the books). Furthermore, like virtually everyone in Hogwarts, he was surprised Hermione [[SheCleansUpNicely cleans up nicely]] at the Yule Ball, and initially didn't recognize her, unlike Ron who had a crush on her from before. In the movies, on account of Creator/EmmaWatson's AdaptationalAttractiveness and the greater on-screen chemistry she shared with Creator/DanielRadcliffe's Harry, and the softening of some of Harry's more jockish traits led the eventual resolution to come across as a ShockingSwerve.
** Harry also has this more obviously with Luna Lovegood, who is basically the little sister and sibling he always wanted. He adores Luna's innocence, feels compassion for her aloofness, and for being picked on by others, and admires her for her courage and determination. At the end of Book 5, [[spoiler:his grief for Sirius was lessened when he talked with Luna and felt brotherly sympathy for her being picked on, offering to help her. Years later, his youngest child with Ginny Weasley was named Lily Luna Potter after her]].

* ''Series/TheExpanse'': Parodied when Jim and Naomi disclose their romantic relationship to the other two members of their crew. Jim was especially worried that Amos, who blindly follows Naomi's every word, might take issue. However, Amos assures him that Naomi is like a sister to him before immediately noting that he'd still have sex with her given the opportunity. Jim just has this ''brilliant'' "wtf?" expression on his face.
